Round 2: Eaten by Spiders

Sorry folks, I planned to do a new thread for each iteration of this so it would be easier to track and participate in.
If you'd all be so kind as to port your entries to this thread I'd be greatful.

Same rules apply as last time.
1. You have 2 days to enter
2. You can enter once, but are allowed to change your entry before I declare the round over. ALL ENTRIES AFTER THE CUTOFF WILL BE IGNORED FOR VOTING PURPOSES
3. You can design any kind of card you want, but it MUST be named

At the end of two days we begin the voting period
1. Voting lasts 2 days
2. Everyone gets 1 vote
3. You don't have to have entered the contest to vote in it.

at the end of the voting period, the entry with the most votes wins and that person may pick a new card for us to redesign.
Good luck!

You may place one 1/1 spider token with reach and wither onto the battlefield

Morbid - You may instead place three 1/1 spider tokens with reach and wither on the battlefield, if a creature has died this turn.

I freely admit the first entry is pretty good (except that Spiders should always have reach), but here's mine.  The title bespeaks using the Devour mechanic, but i decided to word it in such a way that the devour opponent would work in such a way that it'd be equal to the number of creatures that died to spiders.  I threw in the defender part so that it could cost a little less.  Yes, this card would work best in a Spider-only deck.

Tribal Instant-Spider

Cast Eaten by Spiders only during your turn and only during combat.

Spider creatures you control gain deathtouch until end of turn.  Non-Spider creatures you control gain defender until end of turn. (They can't attack)


At the end of this phase, put a 0/2 Spider token on the battlefield with reach and a number of +1/+1 counters equal to the number of creatures that died this turn.

They probably initially started out with the idea that something else was doing the eating, and that whatever it was was big enough to swallow equipment whole.

I kind of assumed that the equipment bit was a last minute addition to keep equipment in check (it was released in the set just after Scars block remember). either way the flavour is less than stellar.

Changed my card from Instant to Sorcery... even an evasion-specific board wipe for 2GG is OP as an instant... let alone tacking on creatures.

Most board wipes are White or variants if not timeshifted. Green hates flying.

This excludes Red mass-destruction, of course.

Could've been Eaten by Wurms, except for the art of course. But then changed it to something less confusing for older players... I dunno. I never got the equipment flavor either. A single spider rarely eats something whole, and multiple spiders would more-than-likely avoid any sharp-pointy, or difficult-to-crunch objects.
